"In a small New England town over half a century ago, a boy is playing with his new toy soldiers in the dirt in front of his house when a shadow falls over him. He looks up to see a striking man, the new minister, Jamie learns later, who with his beautiful wife, will transform the church and the town. The men and boys are a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls, with the Reverend Jacobs--including Jamie's sisters and mother. Then tragedy strikes, and this charismatic preacher curses God, and is banished from the shocked town. Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from age 13, he plays in bands across the country, running from his own family tragedies, losing one job after another when his addictions get the better of him. Decades later, sober and living a decent life, he and Reverend Charles Jacobs meet again in a pact beyond even the Devil's devising, and the many terrifying meanings of Revival are revealed. King imbues this spectacularly rich and dark novel with everything he knows about music, addiction, and religious fanaticism, and every nightmare we ever had about death. This is a masterpiece from King, in the great American tradition of Frank Norris, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Edgar Allan Poe"--… (més)

This might be the only SK book with an ending that's better than the rest. King's the master of spending a thousand pages writing checks the last fifty can't cash. Not so here. I have plenty of bones to pick but Jesus, what an ending. Genuinely horrifying. The first 2/3 are honestly skimmable.

I can't help picturing Jacobs as Robert Mitchum. ( )

Another great Stephen King novel. ( )

Unfortunately I am not finishing this book as it is not doing anything for me and I am so bored with it that I fell asleep while reading it last night. When a supposed "horror" book puts me to sleep then it is time to move on to something else. Some people liked the book, but it is just not for me. Two stars. ( )

For a while, I actually thought that this would be the first book I would give five stars to in ages. But in the end, it just got four stars. Why? Because of the ending. I just didn't like it very much. It was very depressing and for some reason, it felt like a letdown. All I could think was: "Is that all, have I been reading all day for that kind of ending?" I would rather have had a more ambiguous ending to the story. Instead of just the bleak ending. (I need to read something cheerful after this...) However, I'm sure there are people that will love the ending, and it was not a bad ending, but perhaps I'm just a gal that what some hope in the end...

The rest of the book was great, I love Jamie and his family. I love watching him growing up, hell I would have loved reading a book about Jamie's life without Charles Jacobs. I know Jamie would have been a hell of a lot of happier without him in his life. Stephen King is a master telling tales, he has an uncanny ability to create interesting characters (both good and bad) and this book is one his greatest! ( )

Overall, I was slightly disappointed in this book. It was not bad, but not up to King’s usual standards. It contained an eerie vibe, but that did not appear until close to the end. The first three-fourths of the book was basically backstory and, as with many of his books, it is bloated. More on that later.

The story is narrated by young Jamie Morton, who we meet at the age of 5 and follow his life story until his 50’s. As I said, a lot of unnecessary information, which added at least 100 pages of totally useless information. He meets a new minister in town, Charles Jacobs and they are totally taken by each other. Reverend Jacobs heals Jamie’s brother of an inability to talk, which cements the relationship between him and Jamie even more.

As Jamie ages, we learn of his drug addiction, which Reverend Jacobs also heals as well as many others in his travels throughout the country. Unfortunately, the Reverend’s cures occasionally have side effects, many of which we learn about in the book.

I won’t spoil the ending, but it is a little creepy. The book starts off very slow and while Jamie is an engaging character, the book could have been much shorter with the necessary past events told in flashbacks rather than have the reader wade through 40-plus years of Jamie’s life waiting for the big reveal at the end.

Again, not a bad book, certainly worth the read, but not one of King’s best. ( )

The last part of the book moves from the raw emotion about family, love, aging and lost opportunity — all of it written with unusual candor, even for Mr. King — to the horror legacy of those names to whom the book is dedicated.

...veteran yarn spinner King continues to point out the unspeakably spooky weirdness that lies on the fringes of ordinary life.

When I think of Charles Jacobs—my fifth business, my change agent, my nemesis—I can't bear to believe his presence in my life had anything to do with fate. It would mean that all these terrible things—these horrors—were meant to happen. If that is so, then there is no such thing as light, and our belief in it is a foolish illusion. If that is so, we live in darkness like animals in a burrow, or ants deep in their hill.

And not alone.
Astrid and I spent most of the breaks kissing, and I began to taste cigarettes on her breath. I didn't mind. When she saw that (girls have ways of knowing), she started to smoke around me, and a couple of times she'd blow a little into my mouth while we were kissing. It gave me a hard-on I could have broken concrete with.
